Does Galvanize provide housing?
Galvanize does not offer housing options for our students nor are we partnered with local property management companies. Housing is expected to be secured individually. However, your Course Producer will provide you with a Welcome Packet that can help guide you in the housing process when it comes to resources and neighborhoods close to campus.
What resources do I have to help me plan on paying for my living expenses while enrolled in a Galvanize program?
There are a number of resources available from third parties to students to help them plan for their in-school living expenses. Bankrate.com (unaffiliated with Galvanize) provides a student budget calculator, available here. Bankrate.com also provides a helpful cost of living calculator which allows users to compare costs of living between U.S. cities, availible here.
Pepperdine University (unaffiliated with Galvanize) also has a helpful living expense calculator, available here.
Galvanize’s lending partner, SkillsFund, also offers students a cost of living loan. Learn more here.
Can I meet other students to find roommates?
Shortly after paying your deposit you will be given access to the student Slack channel where you will get the opportunity to meet your peers. Many former students have used the channel to find roommates and organize carpools. Galvanize team members will not assist in the roommate search process.
